HPE Aruba Networking 387 Series outdoor 60Ghz/5Ghz point-to-point access point

These high-performing access points are a reliable, simple to deploy, point-to-point solution built to endure extreme temperature and moisture.

For the harshest outdoor environments

Weather-proof and temperature-hardened, the 387 Series APs withstand the harshest outdoor environments.

Hardened outdoor point-to-point connectivity

Hardened outdoor point-to-point connectivity

The 387 Series APs are designed with the resiliency needed during inclement weather and to survive harsh conditions.

Simplified point-to-point deployment

Simplified point-to-point deployment

The 387 Series APs take the pain out of deploying point-to-point Wi-Fi. They automatically form links, and the radios continuously adjust to optimize the connection.



The 387 Series APs include an integrated Bluetooth Low Energy radio to simplify the deployment and management of location services, asset tracking services, security solutions, and IoT sensors. Allowing the 387 Series APs to be leveraged as an IoT platform for outdoor environments eliminates the need for an overlay infrastructure and additional IT resources. 

Flexible management options

Flexible management options

Available management solutions include HPE Aruba Networking Central (available in cloud-managed and on-premises options), as well as Aruba AirWave, which supports multi-vendor networks. APs can be deployed with zero-touch provisioning to reduce deployment time, centralize configuration, and simplify inventory management.

High-speed, outdoor, point-to-point

Weatherproof and temperature-hardened, the 387 Series APs deliver gigabit per second aggregate throughput at distances up to 400 meters (or 0.25 miles).

High-speed, outdoor, point-to-point connectivity

With a maximum concurrent on the air data rate of 2.5 Gbps in the 60GHz band and 867 Mbps in the 5GHz band, the 387 Series delivers an aggregate peak data rate of 3.37 Gbps.

Flexible, intelligent radio offering

The 387 Series access points include dual radio supports for 60GHz and 5GHz to provide throughput in good conditions and provide intelligent fallback if the 60GHz radio is impacted by heavy rainfall.

Secure infrastructure

The 387 Series APs help protect user authentication, wireless traffic, and data, with support for WPA and Enhanced Open, WPA-MPSK, and VPN tunnels.

Weatherproof and temperature-hardened

Supporting temperatures from -40°C to +60°C (-40°F to +140°F) and IP66/67 rated, the 387 Series can withstand the harshest environments.
